Meet the team
Meet the Speak With IT Team…
I’m James and I am the manager for Speak With IT. I am passionate about the charity sector and have held various roles prior to joining SWIT, working in community centres and colleges among other places. In my spare time, when not pretending to be the children’s TV character Bob the Builder with my 4 year old son, I continue to strive to find the time to become the acclaimed novelist I will undoubtedly be in retirement. I live in Leeds with my family and have two cats, Bobby and Arlo.
Hi, my name is Hattie and I’m the Volunteer and Fundraising Coordinator for the charity and probably one of the first faces you’ll meet – just watch out for the red hair! I came to Speak With IT out of the University of Sheffield where I studied English Literature and volunteered with the Sheffield Feminist Archive: where I am still Secretary. You’ll most likely meet me at first appointment as a new client or at volunteer training as a new recruit.
Hi I’m Emma and I’m the Project Support Officer for the charity. I’m involved in processing volunteer applications, keeping our database up to date and creating our quarterly newsletter. Your unlikely to meet me as I’ll be in the office beavering away, but you’ll certainly have email/phone contact with me. I’ve worked in the third sector in Wakefield for over 12 years and really enjoy working for local charities.
